Every summer we offer new experiences and create day camp activities for hundreds of youth. From traditional summer camps that encourage kids to explore new adventures, to preschool camps where campers participate in themed weeks and hands-on learning, we provide kids and youth with opportunity to learn, thrive, grow and of course have fun!  

Two healthy snacks and lunch is provided as an option for our families at no additional cost. Please refer to our weekly menus for what is available daily. In collaboration both with USDA and local non-profits qualifying summer camps receive a free breakfast and/or lunch. Summer meals are provided as an enhancement of camp not a part of camp. If you choose to bring your own lunch or snack please note that we do not allow any foods that contain or that are processed in plants with tree or peanuts at any of our camp sites. 


Made in the Shade Indoor Day Camps

Our Indoor Day Camps are designed to offer enrichment opportunities for all children. These programs also allow participants to engage in character building and positive relationships supporting a commitment to social responsibility.  Indoor Day Camps are hosted conveniently at select local schools in the community. 


Campers spend at least 30% of the day engaging in outdoor activities.

Teen Camp

Through different weekly themes, teens are inspired and empowered as they experience traditional camp as they swim, work in teams, play fun games and make new friends.

Teens will also have the opportunity to learn and grow by participating in:

 • Interactive field trips

 • Listening to professional speakers

 • Participating in educational components such as robotics and arts

 • Planning and volunteering with various service projects

Our goal is for teens to learn to work together, learn new skills, gain better decision making and conflict resolution skills, while discovering something new about themselves.

For teens ages 12 (with completion of 6th grade) to 15 years of age. Ask your location for ages 16-17. Learn more
